This started as a blog about training together as a family, in part to inspire other women & families to get involved. As female participation in jiu jitsu has increased, as we have grown as athletes and as we learned that families training together aren’t such an anomaly, the blog has evolved. Jen gets personal with posts on ambition, challenges & achievements in BJJ, CrossFit & with nutrition, while Tom's posts are more educational, informative and analytical in regards to training. On occasion you may hear from the kids.

Families in BJJ

by Jen

The third issue of Jiu Jitsu Style is now available and I'm thrilled to say that we are quoted in the "Families in BJJ" article. One of the objectives of this blog is to open up the discussion and encourage more women and families to try bjj. Thank you for seeing the importance Meg!!

The magazine is full of great reads so I suggest you check it out. I enjoyed reading about the other families who train, the review of the Mundials and articles like "Five People You Should Never Train With."

Also, thank you Combat Sports Review for highlighting our series on kids tournaments in your June Blogsphere Report!


  1. I've always felt that leading a happy and healthy life was a family affair. Your family is a shining example of how such a life style can enrich family life and bring you closer together. So, it is always a pleasure sharing your stories. Congrats on the props from BJJ Style!

  2. Have had a great response on the article, Jen. Thanks again for sharing your family's journey; an important perspective to share!
